Who lights the menorah?

I discovered that XM Satellite radio is doing 8 days of Hanukkah music. You can connect here. I heard some fun stuff this morning

Menorahs and channakiot can be BIG or little.

David Tonnesen created this BIG "Menorah in stainless steel and bronze" for Young Israel Temple in Brookline MA. Daniel Riccio is the artist who designed this truly miniature menorah. Daniel moved from NY to CT and there his skills in jewelry and sculpture began to merge. His sculptures became increasingly intricate and smaller in scale. His work has been enthusiastically received and before long his miniatures are collected across the country.

From Adam Sandler:

This is a song, that uh, theres alot of xmas songs out there, but not
Too many about hanukkah, so I wrote a song for all those nice little jewish
Kids who dont get to hear any hanukkah songs--here we go...

Put on your yalmulka, here comes hanukkah
Its so much fun-akkah to celebrate hanukkah,

Hanukkah is the festival of lights,
Instead of one day of presents, we have eight crazy nights.

When you feel like the only kid in town without a x-mas tree, heres a list of
People who are jewish, just like you and me:

David lee roth lights the menorrah,
So do james caan, kirk douglas, and the late dinah shore-ah

Guess who eats together at the karnickey deli,
Bowzer from sha-na-na, and arthur fonzerrelli.

Paul newmans half jewish; goldie hawns half too,
Put them together--what a fine lookin jew! [esus]

You dont need deck the halls or jingle bell rock
Cause you can spin the dreidl with captain kirk and mr. spock--both jewish!

Put on your yalmulka, its time for hanukkah,
The owner of the seattle super sonic-ahs celebrates hanukkah.

O.j. simpson-- not a jew!
But guess who is...hall of famerrod carew--(he converted!)

We got ann landers and her sister dear abby,
Harrison fords a quarter jewish--not too shabby!

Some people think that ebeneezer scrooge is,
Well, hes not, but guess who is:all three stooges. [esus]

So many jews are in show biz--
Tom cruise isnt, [tacit] but I heard his agent is. [esus]

Tell your friend veronica, its time you celebrate hanukkah
I hope I get a harmonica, on this lovely, lovely hanukkah.

So drink your gin-and-tonic-ah, and smoke your mara-juanic-ah,
If you really, really wanna-kah, have a happy, happy, happy, happy
Hanukkah. happy hanukka!
